Fishing in George Town

If you’re looking for an exciting adventure in the Cayman Islands, hop on a George Town fishing charter and explore the tropical waters of the Caribbean! From fly fishing in the bay to offshore trolling and bottom fishing, this town has it all.

Known For

George Town has access to some great flats fishing, as well as amazing offshore opportunities. Just a few hundred yards off the coast, the bottom plummets 800 feet below sea level, forming a part of the Cayman Ridge known as “The Wall.” Three miles further, the seafloor gradually drops to 23,000 feet, creating the Cayman Trench. This part of the Caribbean is the ideal environment for big game fish to thrive.

Big Game Fishing

Tropical waters from the Windward Passage funnel big game species through the Cayman Islands, making this area a hot spot for deep sea fishing. Top target species include Blue Marlin, Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna, Skipjack, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo. Other Billfish, such as White Marlin, Sailfish, and Swordfish are occasionally targeted throughout the year as well. These pelagic fish can be caught year-round but they all peak from spring to fall when the waters are warmer, except for Skipjack, who’s peak season is between October and January.

The best part about fishing in George Town is that you don’t have to reserve a whole day for offshore fishing. Many big game species show up pretty close to shore, depending on the season. However, keep in mind, a longer trip may increase your chances of hooking a trophy fish. A few extra hours on the water might be worth it, especially if you’re going after bigger fish.

Bottom Fishing

Grand Cayman Island is surrounded by reefs that hold some amazing aquatic life. Here, you can go bottom fishing for delicious Snapper species, such as Yellowtail, Queen, Cubera, and Mutton Snapper. You can also catch Triggerfish, Nassau Grouper, Barracuda, Kingfish, and many other types of reef species.

Inshore Fishing

George Town has some great flats fishing as well. There are protected flats on Grand Cayman Island that are great for sight casting and fly fishing. These inshore trips produce lots of great catches from Bonefish, Tarpon, Permit, Jack Crevalle, Pompano, and Mangrove Snapper. Places like Red Bay and Pirate’s Lair are right in town and easily accessible, which makes them perfect for shorter, half day trips.

Need to Know

You won’t need a fishing license to fish recreationally on Grand Cayman. However, please keep in mind that fishing from shore is prohibited in some areas and is mostly catch-and-release.

Lobster season is closed from the beginning of March to the end of November. The bag limit is three Lobsters per person (six per boat), and they must be at least six inches long. Conch season is closed from the first of May until October 31 and the limits are five per person and 10 per boat.

Bait and tackle are usually provided on charters, so all you should bring is sun protection, food and snacks, and any other personal items you may need. If you’re not sure what’s included, it’s always best to double check with your captain in advance.

Now that you have some information about fishing in George Town, go ahead and check out some of the charters in the area, find the trip that’s right for you, and start planning your adventure today!

George Town Fishing Seasons

January

Fishing is hot year-round in the Caymans, and January is no exception. You can head to the reefs and bottom fish for Snapper and Triggerfish or head further offshore in search of Mahi Mahi and Skipjack.

February

February is the last month for Lobster fishing, so invite the family on an adventure and enjoy a delicious meal afterward! You can also go offshore for Mahi Mahi and Wahoo, or bottom fish for Nassau Grouper and Yellowtail Snapper.

March

Mahi Mahi and Blue Marlin fishing start to heat up offshore. Now is also a good time to hit the flats and target Bonefish and Tarpon. Reef fishing is solid as well, with likely catches of Mutton and Yellowtail Snapper.

April

Fishing is great inshore and offshore. You can troll the Cayman Trench for Blue Marlin and Mahi Mahi or stay closer to shore and target Bonefish and Jack Crevalle on a fly.

May

May is one of the best times for offshore fishing in the Caymans. Yellowfin Tuna start to appear in greater numbers, as well as Sailfish and White Marlin.

June

Tuna fishing and Billfishing are hotter than ever. Challenge yourself with Sailfish or White Marlin on light tackle or take out the big guns for Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna.

July

July comes with a long list of potential targets. Your menu for the day includes Snapper, Triggerfish, Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi, just to name a few.

August

Inshore fishing will reap lots of rewards this time of year. You’ll have good chances of catching Tarpon, Snook, and Permit in the shallows. Other likely catches include Barracuda, Bonefish, and Pompano. 

September

Mahi Mahi and Blue Marlin fishing remain solid through the fall, making September a great month to head offshore. You can also catch Wahoo and Amberjack at “The Wall” or bottom fish for Snapper and Grouper.

October

October is still a good time for big game Tuna fishing. Head out to the trench and deep drop for Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna or troll for Skipjack. You’ll also be able to target Tarpon, Jack Crevalle, and Mangrove Snapper in the shallows if you wish to stay closer to shore.

November

Bonefish make a serious comeback. Add Tarpon and Permit to the bucket list and you’re on your way to completing an Inshore Grand Slam.

December

Lobster season opens once again so take this opportunity to plan a fun trip with the family. Offshore fishing is solid as well if you’re after Mahi Mahi and Wahoo.

July is a bit slower fishing, so I'd research the best time of year to fish for a better bite. Be prepared with your own snacks if you are particular, and definitely bring a UV dri-fit fishing shirt and a hat to protect you from the sun.

Told the captain we had young kids, so catching a good amount of fish was the goal more than keepers. Mission accomplished, plus the boat ride was fun and fast.
